Subtractions and an addition.
The Grumpy Old Twat has had enough entertaining the blogosphere with RA18+ Pshop mash-ups poking fun or showing his outrage, which is a shame because even as some made you wince and breath in with a sharp “oooh” a lot of them were quite funny. So the bastard goes off the blogroll and into the Gone-But-Not-Forgotteness of the suspended animation room, along with Wholly Rude and Plato. There haven’t been any announcements from them that I’ve noticed but they’ve been silent for several months, and Plato’s blog doesn’t even seem to be there any more. Hopefully all three will reappear to take up keyboards and do bloggle one day in the future.
Addition wise there’s only a good quote for the sidebar, courtesy of Laban in the comments over at Julia’s. It dovetails very nicely with my last post and with the incessant bloody nannying that we see so much of today, though I wasn’t familiar with it and had to google to see who said it.
Of all tyrannies, a tyranny exercised for the good of its victims may be the most oppressive. It may be better to live under robber barons than under omnipotent moral busybodies. The robber baron’s cruelty may sometimes sleep, his cupidity may at some point be satiated; but those who torment us for our own good will torment us without end, for they do so with the approval of their own conscience.C.S. Lewis
How bloody true.
